    so: I decided that I wanted to build my own Pc, and make it look awesome, which will accentuate its performance (I am paying this with my own money by the way lol, I normally get about £2000 per year coz of birthdays, celebrations and stuff).

    I want it to at least average around 100 fps (or something) and I just hope that my dad will allow me o-o...

    Well, I don't know a whole lot about building pc's but for pc's already built Alienware X51 are really good and are built for things such as streaming while playing games at the highest details remaining with decent fps.. since MC isn't very demanding I'm pretty sure you'd be able to go on max settings, livestream and upload/download and still reach 100 fps.

    Yeah, just turn the clouds off as people won't even notice they are off. plus, it gives you more fps.

    I have a feeling you are not the kind of person that would actually be able to do this, don't take this the wrong way, but from previous posts I am not sure you have the technical abilities to do it. When building a PC you're looking at wiring all the components, mix/matching them right (one CPU works with a set of motherboards, not all, for example), and obviously hours of troubleshooting, cause inevitably something will not work. So I'd rather just suggest you get a Mac from Apple and enjoy a working, crash free experience.

    I wouldn't suggest a Mac for one reason in particular above all and that is the fact that not all games support Mac meaning you're limited to the games you can play, E,G Smite doesn't support Mac therefore he wouldn't be able to play it.

    Its mostly the developers who are to lazy to port their game to Mac's, the latest Macs run games extremely well. I'm on a MacBook and can run Minecraft at 80+FPS with multiple screens attached, easily.

    Well, then just ask him, lol. Whats the point of this forum thread when you've got someone thats got that kind of a position already? :p

    Well yeah but it still limits you until the devs are less lazy and the thing is PC's are more customizable which is why people prefer them.

    You do not necessarily need a gaming computer to get 100+ fps on MC. I get more 120ish on my Mac Book Pro. (8 gigs of ram, i5 cpu, 2tb hardrvive and intel HD graphics 5000). Macs, as Halo said, in spite of what most people think are actually very good at running games.

    I didn't suggest that you should get a Mac, I was simply suggested that you do not need to build your own computer. 100 fps is easily achievable with a 500 pound prebuilt computer.

    I totally agree that's why I also have a Windows partition on my Mac Book. Good hardware and Windows.

    I wonder why most programmers in their right mind prefer Macs...

    It can't be too many programmers since there are still a lot of games that aren't compatible with mac :eek:..
